Conventional rack system load bars can create aerodynamic drag and wind noise, which can be tiring on long journeys. But if you're worried that a streamlined, aerodynamic bar may not be able to handle the load, you need to check out the Thule AeroBlade load bar. The AeroBlade is a unique combination of aerodynamic design for a quiet ride and BoxBeam construction for strength.
The AeroBlade has several features for reducing drag and noise. WindDiffuser™ is a textured surface on the T-slot cover that disturbs the airflow better than a smooth surface, greatly reducing wing noise, and the sharp corners on the AeroBlade promote clean "air release", helping to reduce aerodynamic drag. And along with its aerodynamic features the AeroBlade is also one of the strongest load bars on the market, thanks to its sophisticated BoxBeam construction. The BoxBeam aluminum extrusion creates a load bar that is so strong it withstood a vertical load test of over 800 lbs. of force in a laboratory test. (Thule advises that you not exceed the AeroBlade's recommended maximum load capacity of 165 lbs.)
The AeroBlade works perfectly with nearly all Thule accessories, and the end cap pivots open to allow full access to the T-slot for easy accessory installation. The AeroBlade can be installed with all current Thule Rapid Foot Packs. The molded-in measurement system provides for quick, no hassle, tape-measure-free foot installation and it also covers the underbar slot to improve aerodynamics and noise diffusion. The T-track allows fast foot mounting and the bar is gently arched to match curved roof shapes.
AeroBlade load bars are sold in pairs and come with everything required to install to the Rapid Foot Pack, including detailed instructions. Installation of Rapid foot pack on some vehicles may require vehicle specific installation kit. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.
